Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 Description

The solar system is a source of fascination for many people, with new discoveries still to be made and a source of modern exploration. Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 is an application that displays information on each of the planets in the solar system that can be quickly accessed, with an array of facts and interesting details.

A simple interface that features some odd design choices and a few glaring oversights

While the basic concept of Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 is relatively simple, easily accessible information on the various planets, there are some extremely odd design choices. Firstly, the planets are not listened in their order from the closest to the furthest from the sun, which is the most common order for the planets.

Secondly, there is no information on Pluto. While officially, Pluto is no longer a planet, it is still a major astral body in our solar system and used to be classified as planet, providing a page on Pluto would be an interesting addition to the program. There is also no discernible information for each of the moons, in cases such as Titan, there is a glaring oversight.

A lack of features and no discernible update option which means the application will age poorly

Given that our knowledge of the planets is still being updated and new discoveries happen regularly, not to mention our classification of planets changes regularly, Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 is going to be redundant quickly. Without a constant source of updating information, most of the facts in Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 will be wrong within a short space of time.

The information on each page is also limited, there is not a lot stored there and it could easily be upgraded with more detail as well as images. Some of the facts they mention are also brief and lacking detail, if a planet is named after a god, it fails to mention when it got that name, why it was named that after that particular god.

A nice idea, but a poorly executed program that offers very little useful information

Being able to access planetary information from your desktop without the need of a web browser could be useful, yet not the way Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 does it. The information provided is of a poor quality and will be very quickly inaccurate and outdated. While Solar System RT for Windows 10/8.1 clearly tries to be a useful source of knowledge, there are too many underdeveloped areas.
